Tips on finding the perfect style and fit.
HOW MUCH DOES A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER COST IN PARIS?
The cost of hiring us as your Paris wedding photographer depends on multiple factors, notably the artist’s experience and reputation and what’s included in your photography collection.
Seasonality, coverage time, the number of artists (i.e., second shooters vs. assistants), the quantity and quality of physical prints & albums, and add-on shoots (e.g., engagement, rehearsal, cultural ceremonies spanning multiple days) can add to the overall fee.
Depending on the scope of your celebrations, we can charge by the hour or offer comprehensive half-day to full-day wedding photography packages that may include the following:
- An engagement photo session (and/or a sexy boudoir, rehearsal dinner, good-bye brunch, trash-the-dress, etc.);
- Physical prints and albums;
- The high-resolution digital files;
- Professional post-processing (a.k.a. premium editing) services;
- Travel and accommodation fees (if applicable);
- Non-Disclosure Agreement to protect sensitive information;
Remember, when you value wedding photos and a fantastic experience, allocate 10%-15% of your wedding budget to your professional photographer. Also, ensure that you understand the contract (it’s a legally binding document that clearly references the services, products, and artists you book).
Our French wedding was absolutely a dream come true. My (now) husband and I decided to elope in Paris in November. We hired Cengiz with Kiss Me in Paris to photograph the whole thing. Just incredible! Working with the company was a breeze; everything was coordinated incredibly well. Cengiz is exceptionally skilled, knowledgeable, and a joy to work with. THANK YOU for capturing an extraordinary celebration in our lives and making it even more incredible with your talent and passion. You’d be making a huge mistake unless you go with Kiss Me in Paris!
Which of your wedding photographers is best for me?
Hire the Paris photographer based on your budget as well as personality, style (and optionally) gender preferences. All of our artists are experienced, professional, discrete, and passionate about their work. However, there are fundamental differences.
So, the best way to discover the right fit is to peruse each of our artists’ portfolios, understand their collection fees, and then (optionally) set up an informational chat via Zoom.
Our rates vary substantially: Juliana and Scander are around €300 per hour, Vincent €400 per hour, and Cengiz’s collections are available upon request.
What happens after I book my photographer in Paris?
After booking wedding photography with us, you’ll receive an email confirmation with your requested package, preferred date, and starting time (as part of an official contract). In parallel, our studio managers will connect you with your Paris wedding photographer, so you can immediately kick preparations into high gear.
Suppose you already have a wedding planner. Then it’s a good idea to connect everyone. Typically, your planner will solicit our opinion after creating a draft timeline.
Do you also offer wedding videos?
Absolutely. We are one of few studios in town experienced in wedding films and photos. Our passionate videographers and photographers prefer to work with each since they inspire one another. What’s the benefit for you? Fewer administrative touch-points, coordinated expert preparation, and world-class photos & film.

What to Expect
#1 Different by design
Our approach to weddings is about getting to know each other before your special day (typically via Zoom). Feeling comfortable and at ease with your artist is crucial, as this will impact your experience and result in better portraits.
We’ll take the time to understand your expectations and speak with your planner.
Our photographers have photographed the weddings of Liu Xiaoqing, Princess Ameera Al-Taweel, Ralph Dommermuth, and a host of other larger-than-life personalities. Our pictures have been seen on CNN, ESPN, TIME, PEOPLE, E!, ABC News, ET, Huffington Post, LA Times, Tatler, French Wedding Style, …
We are the most award-winning photographer in Paris and one of few studios in the world to excel at all 4 elements of modern wedding photography:
- Candid photojournalism plays a crucial role in authentically and unobtrusively telling your story and capturing unscripted, intimate moments (e.g., first dance, emotional speeches, joy and tears, romance, children being children, tender moments between husband and wife, etc.);
- Fine Art editorial photography for bigger-than-life frameable fashion portraits. Our master photographers will make you look and feel amazing while encouraging believable, fun, and memorable connection as a couple;
- Magazine-worthy details, décor, and ambiance to preserve the aesthetic and style of your Big Day;
- Formal family portraits or posed group shots document a rare historical snapshot of which friends and family were present at your celebrations in Paris.
#2 Professionalism & Discretion guaranteed
We take your privacy seriously and keep all personal information and photos 100% confidential. We will never share your photos online, via social media, or in any other form without your written consent.
We dress sharp, show up on time, and always strive to exceed your lofty expectations. Our packages are customizable, and all deliverables are transparently stated in a legally binding wedding contract.
#3 Fast turnaround of your wedding photos
You’ll receive a password-protected online gallery with all edited images approximately 3-4 weeks after your Big Day. Then it’s time to select your favorite pictures for your album(s).
#4 Access to the finest handcrafted albums & printing solutions in the world
Our amazing wedding albums are widely regarded as the finest artisan books money can buy. That’s right—our high-end, luxurious albums are handmade in New Zealand and come with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects. You can personalize your album as you see fit using the highest quality leathers and silks available.
Likewise, finding better prints than those offered by Duggal Visual Solutions in New York is nearly impossible. Our prints are carefully packed and include white gloves so you can display them without adding fingerprints.
How it Works.
Book with confidence.
01 Book your photographer in Paris with confidence
So you think we’re a great fit? Yaay! We’re excited to meet you and can’t wait to be part of your French wedding! Your next step is to lock in your preferred date, Paris wedding photographer, and package. Once your reservation is complete, you’ll immediately receive a summary with your shoot details, including the contact information of your artist. BOOK NOW.
02 Enjoy a complimentary consultation and timeline review
Approximately three weeks before your special day, our studio managers will set up a Zoom meeting to review your draft timeline (optionally also with your planner) and provide invaluable tips and inspiration for a better experience and photos.
03 It’s showtime!
Today’s your Big Day in Paris. Chill the Champagne, load your favorite playlist, and consider any elements that may boost your sensory experience.
Expect your principal Paris wedding photographer to start in the bridal suite while the second shooter kicks off the day with the groom and his entourage.
Prepare and present all details you’d like us to photograph (i.e., wedding bands, the gown on a pretty hanger, bridal bouquet, stationery, the exchange of gifts and love letters, red-bottom shoes, etc.).
We typically do not shoot the entire hair and makeup transformation but ask that your beauty artist dresses sharp and chooses a flattering spot with natural light for the final touchups.
If your timeline calls for a reveal or a couple photoshoot at locations around Paris (including the Eiffel Tower), consider the logistics for your visual team. Ask your planner’s assistant or an authoritative family member to help read out the shot list of family formals. Surprise everyone, but not your artistic team. Enjoy and have a special time!
04 Get your pictures back fast and start designing your wedding album
You’ll receive a password-protected online gallery with all edited photos approximately 3-4 weeks after your Big Day. Oftentimes, we will also share a so-called teaser gallery to keep you excited on your honeymoon. Then it’s time to select your favorite pictures for your album(s); our studio managers will assist you until your album looks perfect.
Kiss Me in Paris did an incredible job! Kind, professional, and prompt. I would never have expected a big production like this from a photography team, and it was truly a wonderful experience. We now have memorable pictures to cherish forever.Amanda Cowper
